This course is 3 to 5 days in length. This includes classroom instruction, emergency simulations (ACLS) and hands on IV placement. Pharmacology, physiology, airway management, and patient screening are heavily emphasized in the core curriculum. We show assistants the most concise system of patient evaluation for situations before, during, and after sedation procedures. By working with our instructors in simulated case scenarios, dental assistants also learn how to:
- Effectively communicate with their dentist during an emergency or code
- How and where to place the IV for their doctor
- Document sedation while they assist with the procedure
- Perform a thorough discharge evaluation
- Prepare and operate any monitor
- Interpret monitor readouts
- Change & troubleshoot monitor parameters.
